Webroot has announced a strategic partnership with Kaseya through which Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection (WSAB) has been integrated as a module into the Kaseya VSA management platform.
The objective is to provide simplified and automated endpoint security management that ensures each individual endpoint is constantly monitored and protected against malware, ransomware and advanced persistent threats. Additional benefits include support for Apple products and access to the Webroot Unity API (Unity), which allows security administrators to access additional Webroot endpoint data and services.
“Managing an endpoint security solution is an increasingly challenging task for MSPs and small businesses. Issues can include poor efficacy, poor event visibility, poor automation and remediation, high support-desk call rates and increasingly high operational costs,” said Charlie Tomeo, vice president of channel and technical sales at Webroot. “Organizations need endpoint security solutions that are cost effective yet powerful, efficient yet highly secure.”
The Webroot Kaseya Module includes management from a single pane of glass, the ability to search via Kaseya group, machine ID or other criteria, mirrored management for groups, and automatic recognition and management for already installed Webroot agents via VSA.
The module is now available through the Kaseya Automation Exchange, which is the company’s marketplace.
The move is likely to support managed service providers in their efforts to deliver security offerings more efficiently.
